"Must Read!! Front Desk Guy Roger!!"
I recently took a trip to Rio (May 8, 2015), and I stayed at this hotel. I have to say I don't write many reviews, but I had to for this hotel. First the hotel was up to standard and they were under renovation, which shows how committed they are to their clients. Clean hotel, friendly helpful staff that spoke many languages, good Italian restaurant. Hotel is in front of the beach and you get wifi at the beach!!! Pretty awesome!! Overall, it was an awesome hotel in a great location!! NOW FOR ROGER: He works the front desk in the afternoons. He was amazing!! He assisted us in all of our requests in such a manner that left me speechless. He was attentive, patient, courteous, humble, hospitable, and went out of his way to make sure our experience in Rio and Sol Ipanema was more than memorable. I travel frequently abroad and I say with a lot of confidence that Roger is one of a kind. If you go he is your man for any request to expierence the best of Rio. This hotel is lucky to have such a great employee working for them. If you stay ASK FOR ROGER. A true gentleman and professional!! When I return I will book this Hotel again!! Great choice!

"2nd stay with a few inconveniences"
Stayed here for the 1st time in 1998 on my 1st trip to Rio. Very impressionable, so decided to stay again but this time with family - their first time to Rio. In all, we enjoyed our stay despite inconveniences. It’s hard to summarize in 1500 characters so here are the highlights: Views: Gorgeous with 2 Brothers on one end and Arpoador on the other Comfort: Sufficiently large ocean front with 2Q beds; slightly firm, slept fairly well; temperature hard to regulate. Washcloths not provided as it’s not customary; Room kept clean; Safe; no concerns of theft; Large Dining area with excellent views; Repair work to exterior caused slightly obstructed views & access to roof top pool/bar; Seriously consider adding balconies; Small lobby/bar; Chair & beach towel service was nice Refrigerator: well stocked, reasonable prices In-Room Coffee: Not complimentary; small coffee maker provided but for-purchase coffee; not acceptable for most any upscale hotel. Dining: Rate incl. breakfast buffet of scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage, cold cuts, cheeses, toast, cereal, fruit, excellent selection of pastries/breakfast breads. Elevator: Find a more permanent fix for elevator problem; read reviews about the elevator malfunctioning. After we got there we saw it firsthand. It was painful to wait an eternity for an elevator. Stairs not an option when you're on the 13th floor; they have 2 elevators; if 1 is out of commission, everyone else is waiting on the other.

"Not that great"
The neighborhood was great close to all the bars and restaurants. Beach was beautiful but the hotel sucked for $30-$40 more I could have stayed at the JW. Hotel was old and plumbing was so old that our bathroom was flooding. Gym only has two machines and the pool is the size of my bathtub (tiny). Best advice I can give Id don't be cheap and pay a few extra bucks for comfort.

"Great location on the beach; terrible Internet"
The location is great - right on the beach (well across the street from it, as all of the beachfront hotels are). The staff was very very nice; rooms were fine, although the beach side of the hotel was draped in iron mesh due to constructions (March 2015). My only complaint is their Internet service was slow when it worked, and often didn't work at all. I needed it for work, and so it was a real problem not to have Internet use.

I had a wonderful stay and I will go back to this hotel and stay anytime I visit. I am not one who normally writes reviews, but this hotel and its staff definitely deserve the kudoz. They are helpful, polite and anything positive you can expect from a hotel staff. It is however a very small hotel, so don't expect a big pool or anything, but the beach is right across the street. Thank you for all your kindness during my stay.

"Very good hotel, ocean front located."
We enjoy very much our stay in the hotel. We came very early, so we had to wait for the room. The front desk attendants were very kind and thet gave us a fantastic surprise by upgrading our room to one in front of the beach, with a complementary basket of fruits: it was my 70th birthday. We spent with my wife one very happy week in the hotel and enjoy its magnificent breakfasts.

"Great location!"
Sits right in the heart of my favorite area of Ipanema with great access to beaches, restaurants, and shopping. This was our third stay at the hotel because of the location, easy access to the beaches, and the rooms with complimentary breakfast are great. Unfortunately the staff is never very friendly. For the second straight year, the front desk tried to give us a lesser room than the one we were guaranteed on Expedia. Please make sure if you book this hotel that you take a copy of your reservation - especially if you pay in advance. After a long discussion, both years they did eventually upgrade us to the room we paid for in advance on Expedia.

"Definitely the best Best Western!"
Wonderful hotel in Ipanema with outstanding staff and great views from the ocean rooms. I was very impressed with staff and their courteousness. The rooms look recently upgraded with wooden floors and have iPhone docks. Nice breakfast with a view of the beach. The pool is on the roof with a gorgeous view but it's a plunge pool, and the gym is really tiny. Ideal location. I would stay here again. Splurge on the ocean view; it's a very tall hotel with great views and the sound of the ocean waves is wonderful.

"Sol Ipanema"
Overall, I think the stay was pleasant the view of the beach from the hotel was beautiful you can be mesmerize every morning by the view, I was not to impress with the cost of the stay, before coming to the hotel I was staying at a five star in Sao Paulo, and a five star in Bueno Aires after leaving Rio, and the cost of the five star hotels are still cheaper than the stay at Sol Ipanema. The staff overall were friendly on helping me with places to visit.

All the Ipanema area was very nice,the only bad thing was that the city was very dirty because of the carnival.Took them several days to clean,fact that was helped by the rain. I stayed in a 3 person room,one double and one single extra bed,which unfortunately was a bit small, i am 1,75m tall and the end of me feet were out of the bed, probably it was for kids.

All of the staff was very friendly and helpful except for one or two employees who gave me faulty directions or did not understand me completely. I would have rather they just said "I don't know" or "i don't understand" rather than sending me off on a wild goose chase. Also, be careful before signing up for the tours.
